This is my first tricolor deck, with Rubina as general, who got lots of hate after just one round of playing for messing up everyone's plans. The theme is control, retaliating if attack, but otherwise sit back and have the other players finish each other off before getting aggressive, maybe meddle a bit with their plans. Could probably see a lot of improvement. What should go and what should enter the deck to improve it? Suggestions are highly appreciated!

Why are you playing Bruna with exactly 0 Auras? You can do a lot better at the 6 mana slot.

Because Bruna steals auras from other creatures. I still don't feel that this is the best use of a CMC6 slot, however.

Feels like Bruna could be replaced by Greater Good.

That was the plan. Do you have any other suggestions?

I might mistake its use, but I planned to use it to stop attacks against me. If attacked by an angel and a soldier for example, respond by paying 2 mana to Unnatural Selection and make them into walls, unable to attack?

EDIT: Okay, I see now that it won't work that way. I'll pull it from the deck and add it to my sliver deck instead.
